What is an example of attitude coloring events in your life, for better or worse?
I watch Chris and Jenna’s kids pretty regularly. I’ve always cleaned the house for them, just to keep busy (I don’t have internet access there.) Then I decided it would be nice for them to be able to come home to a home cooked dinner.
First time I made spaghetti, and it was fine.
Then I made chicken and dumplings and it was a disaster!
Next time, fried chicken and another disaster!
The next time I went over and Jenna had something brewing in a crock pot. I just laughed inside! I can hear them saying, “How are we going to stop Mom from cooking for us again?!” That was their gracious hint. :D
I found it funny.
Another person could have been offended. You know, she’s trying to do this nice thing for them, she cleans the house, she watches their kids, she doesn’t get paid and now they insult her cooking??!!
I’m really not a bad cook. It’s just hard in someone else’s house, using some one else’s food and a stove I’m not familiar with.
